There is no doubt that IPL is one of the best innovations of the Indian cricketing system. The league has opened a door to the budding talents of the game. Besides, it is also generating more revenue which is essential for the growth of the country’s cricket. On top of that, it is entertaining the cricket lovers across the world with its high-octane action.

However, the IPL has been a double-edged sword as it has benefitted and harmed the Indian cricket in equal measures. Along with its rise, it has also laid the foundation stone for several controversies that have affected the Indian cricket negatively. Over the years, each of the franchises has been involved in various disputed matters which has eventually smeared their reputation as well as of the league.

Here is the ranking of IPL franchises on the controversy scale :

8. Delhi Capitals

In popular culture India’s capital, Delhi is mostly called ” Dilwalon ki Delhi ” because of the accepting nature of the state. Even their IPL franchise is so accepting that they have made 130 signings in 13 years. Keeping the pun aside, it is quite simple to understand why the team has been unable to make their mark in the tournament.

The franchise has never tried to maintain continuity in their team set-up. Not only the team has seen multiple personnel changes but they have also seen leadership changes which have mostly resulted in negative outcomes. Such has been the misery that they are the only team in the league history who are yet to knock on the doors of IPL final.

Still, there is something to smile for the Delhi fans as their team has never been involved in any wrongdoings in search of success and fame. Apart from a couple of slow-over rate and indiscipline charges the franchise has kept a clean sheet throughout their journey. There has hardly been an incident where the team has played the game in wrong spirits. Hence this time their supporters will be happy to see them at the bottom of the table.
